One of the most prevalent topics we get questions about is sex and intimacy. And for good reason: sexual intimacy is an important part of marriage, but it also tends to be one of the most misunderstood. For starters, here are some biblical truths about sex:
- Sex is a good, gracious gift from God. He designed it.
- Sex is created exclusively for the marriage covenant. Elsewhere is sin and will lead to brokenness.
- Sex is created with huge purposes in mind.
- Sex is meant to be enjoyed!
With those principles in place (there are more, but for today we’ll stop there), we can begin to understand what a healthy sex life might look like. For a much more in-depth look at the purposes of sex, consider reading our latest book Fierce Marriage.
